Cna/ekg tech/phlebotomist

  1. Hello everyone!! I'm currently a CNA and I'm school taking Phlebotomy and the EKG Technician programs. I'm taking them both separately. I was wondering if the anyone knows what the going pay rate is for new hire PCT's? Do you think it's best to use each certification separately?
    In Connecticut. :spin:

    Hello, I think the pay rate always varies on who and where you work. I was a CNA and went through a hospital, and got paid $12.50/hr to become a PCA, where I learned EKG's, cardiac monitors, how to cath, phlebotomy, sterile wound care etc... then I made $13.75/hr in the hospital. My last job was at $15.25/hr in home health care, I begin LPN school November 2009... Good Luck!!
